About this book

Britain hosts a diversity of freshwater environments, from torrential hill streams and lowland rivers to lakes and reservoirs, ponds and canals, and ditches and estuaries.

Britain's Freshwater Fishes covers more than 50 species of freshwater and brackish fish found in these waters. This beautifully illustrated guide features in-the-hand and in-the-water photographs throughout, and accessible and informative overviews of topics such as fish biology and life cycles. Detailed species accounts describe key identification features, with information on status, size and weight, habitat, ecology, and conservation.

Britain's Freshwater Fishes also includes a glossary and suggestions for further reading. This easy-to-use field guide will be invaluable to anyone interested in Britain's freshwater fish life, from naturalists and academics to students and anglers.

"[...] this book lives up to the billing: it tells you everything the non-angler could reasonably want to know, concisely and with authority. It is in most an respects the concise fish book we have been waiting for."
- Peter Marren, British Wildlife 25(1), October 2013
